When they’re wandering in the valley,
Walk with them.
When they’re struggling up the mountain path,
Let your presence strengthen them.
When they stumble,
Offer them your hand.
When their eyes fill with tears,
Let yours be the shoulder they cry on.
When they need a listening ear,
Remember you have two.
When they need a word of encouragement,
Make it sincere and succinct.
When they’re victorious,
Cheer the loudest.
If they’re standing on the precipice ready to soar,
Offer to tandem jump with them.
If they’re looking for God – and even if they’re not,
Point them heavenward.
